Woolstok Light, a new, fingering weight yarn added to the Blue Sky Fibers' yarn and Woolstok collections. Inspired by the much-loved and highly admired Woolstok (Worsted), Woolstok Light is made from 100% Fine Highland Wool.
Fourteen colors define this well rounded palette, full of versatile neutrals and vibrant pops of color. These colors are named after the same colors you love from the Woolstok (Worsted) yarn line. With neutrals like Grey Harbor, Cast Iron and Highland Fleece to everyday pops of color like Deep Velvet, October Sky and Golden Meadow. Soft and woolly with beautiful stitch definition, this lofty, single-ply yarn takes on a new richness of color. With 14 colors to choose from you can easily get creative with your knitting by designing with a single color or combining colors for unique colorwork projects. The recommended needle range is 3-5 us/3.25-3.75 mm, but it looks great even up to an 8 US/5 mm.
